Giving Trees: 11/26 - 12/18

Look for our GIVING TREES in the Commons during Advent.  The trees will go up for the First Sunday of Advent and will stay up until the 18th   and will have ornaments with suggested gifts for all ages from infants to elderly for our local ministry partners and our sister parishes.  There’s something there for every budget and interest.  Looking for a good way to help this Advent?  Consider delivering gifts to one of our local ministry partners.  For more information, contact

Take an ornament and return the unwrapped item, gift card, or donation to the Commons by December 18th.

These Gifts Benefit local Ministry Partners:

  • VEAP
  • STEP
  • Ascension Place
  • Sharing and Caring Hands
  • Crisis Nursery Center

Take an ornament and bring new unwrapped gifts and place them under the trees.  If you picked a gift card ornament, put the gift card in the box on the table between the trees. We’ll get the gifts to the right place.

These Gifts also Benefit our Sister Parishes and Outreach Partners and their education ministries:

  • Our Lady of Grace High School and St. Joseph’s Parish in Ghana
  • San Maximiliano Kolbe Parish in Honduras
  • John Paul II Prep School in Northeast Minneapolis

Take an ornament and put the item in the box marked donations on the table between the trees. Please make all checks payable to Our Lady of Grace and in the memo line please note the ministry your gift is intended for.
